“‘Men get raped and molested,’ should be a whole sentence. If you have to tack on the word ‘too,’ then you’re using the experience of male victims to silence females instead of giving them their own space.”—
Please don’t pull statements from the crevice between your buttcheeks and pretend they’re profound truths.
How, exactly, does adding a word to the end of a sentence—a word that doesn’t change the meaning of the sentence, I might add—“silence” anyone? How does it take away their “space”? What does that even mean?
you know what’s a friggin terrifying kid’s movie? the brave little toaster

I KNOW RIGHT
My dad bootlegged it from a video store when I was a wee munchkin and my parents did the old “oh this is a cartoon it must be okay for kids!!!” thing, and let me watch it over and over and over and over
Some 20 rockets were fired in 20 minutes from Gaza at Israel. Among them, 2 hit open areas in the Sha’ar HaNegev Regional Council, and 2 more in open areas in the Eshkol Regional Council. Five hit open areas in the Be’er Sheva area and at least one was intercepted by Iron Dome over central Israel and another fell in an open area.
Hamas’ armed wing, the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, claimed responsibility for the fire at central Israel, saying they fired M-75 and Fajr-5 missiles at the Tel Aviv area and a G80 rocket towards Ben Gurion International Airport.
Just because we have issues at home, doesn’t mean we should forget there are still problems abroad.
Many municipalities in the Golden State have now banned plastic bags. First, they came for our plastic bags; now they are coming after paper bags… at least in California. California Senate Bill 270 would prohibit grocery stores, convenience stores, wine shops, fast food joints and so forth from handing out free paper bags to their customers. From the bill:
This bill, as of July 1, 2015, would prohibit stores that have a specified amount of sales in dollars or retail floor space from providing a single-use carryout bag to a customer, with specified exceptions. The bill would also prohibit those stores from selling or distributing a recycled paper bag at the point of sale unless the store makes that bag available for purchase for not less than $0.10.
The bill would also allow those stores, on or after July 1, 2015, to distribute compostable bags at the point of sale only in jurisdictions that meet specified requirements and at a cost of not less than $0.10.
The bill would require these stores to meet other specified requirements on and after July 1, 2015, regarding providing reusable grocery bags to customers, including distributing those bags only at a cost of not less than $0.10.
The bill, on and after July 1, 2016, would additionally impose these prohibitions and requirements on convenience food stores, foodmarts, and entities engaged in the sale of a limited line of goods, or goods intended to be consumed off premises, and that hold a specified license with regard to alcoholic beverages.
“From the fact that people are very different it follows that, if we treat them equally, the result must be inequality in their actual position, and that the only way to place them in an equal position would be to treat them differently. Equality before the law and material equality are therefore not only different but are in conflict with each other; and we can achieve either one or the other, but not both at the same time.”—Friedrich August von Hayek (1899-1992) Austrian economist and political thinker (via philosophicalconservatism)
White conservatives are constantly complaining about their constitutional rights being threatened, but I haven’t heard any conservative politician speak out against the Ferguson police force violating protesters’ 1st amendment right to peacefully protest. I guess the 1st amendment only applies to white people.
I grew up as a member of the homeschool community. When I was a teenager, my friends started reading this new book called I Kissed Dating Goodbye. For months we could talk of little else. After reading it myself, I grew into as big an opponent of dating as you could find. Dating was evil and Courtship, whatever it was, was godly, good and Biblical.
Another perspective on dating for your reading enjoyment.
today i was talking to some boys about how gender roles influence their minute-to-minute behaviours and they were all “not necessarily i mean not all-” and i said “one example is interrupting women when they talk and dismissing their ideas” and silence
Calling bullshit on this one, it goes both ways and I’ve seen and heard it happen.
Hi, I have a question about what you think about what's going on in ferguson right now. It breaks my heart that Michael brown died, but I don't think that condones the riots that are going on. I understand the devastation about the death, but that doesn't make it okay to act like that. I just don't think that was a good way to deal with what happened. That being said, I don't really know what to make of the police force, so I'm asking, what do you think?
Here’s what I think:
Michael Brown’s death was tragic
But he may have brought it upon himself through aggression
Note that I said “may” because we don’t know all the facts
We will never know all the facts because the only people who were there have conflicting testimonies
If they take the officer to trial, it will only be to cave into public pressure and it’s only prolonging the inevitable because there is no way and I mean NO WAY he will be convicted of murder under any halfway reasonable justice system because there is no evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that his shooting of that kid wasn’t justified.
The rioting and looting is animalistic and useless and ignores some much bigger social problems.
For more thoughts on the issue, many of which I agree with, watch this.
can we start a club for teenagers who were constantly complimented on their intelligence when they were younger and are now having trouble coping with the realization that they’re actually of average intellect at best
can this club have a support person that helps us to study because we didn’t need to before so we don’t know how to now
